''Superman IV'' was plagued by a severely reduced budget compared to previous films in the franchise (courtesy of Creator/TheCannonGroup, which bought the franchise from the Salkinds), and it shows in copious amounts of SpecialEffectFailure throughout. The returns of Gene Hackman and Margot Kidder to the cast did nothing to save this movie. It's also notable as the shortest film in the series at barely an hour-and-a-half. Its running time was cut by the producers for its theatrical release, and while its DVD cut doesn't make it much ''better'' by most accounts, it's at least marginally more ''coherent.'' One extended action sequence cut from the theatrical release features the "prototype" of Nuclear Man, who closely resembles Creator/DCComics' Bizarro character.

** Lacy is similar to Cat Grant. Both are romantically interested in Clark, though in Lacy's case she does it to prove to Lois that "all men are attracted to [her], because she's rich".

* HurlItIntoTheSun: Superman rounds up all the nuclear weapons on Earth and throws them into the sun. Unfortunately, SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor attaches a genetic matrix created from Superman's hair to the final nuclear missile. And when Superman throws it into the sun, the result is the creation of Nuclear Man, who Superman then has to fight.

* WhatTheHellHero: Superman invites Lois on a flight, similar to the scene in the first film. In that film, Lois accidently slipped from his grasp, forcing him to rescue her. Here, he decides to ''deliberately drop her'' and then rescue her, for reasons which don't really make sense.
